Have you suffered from headaches for years? Do you wake up with a headache or do they tend to come on throughout the day? Are you tired of taking medication that dulls the pain but never really gets to the source of the problem? If you are, you are not alone! Headaches are one of the most common ailments effecting people today and is a very common reason for visiting the doctor. Millions of work hours are lost each year due to headaches, costing businesses a lot of money in poor staff attendance. Headaches can be a terrible interference in your life and often seem to come from nowhere! They are usually caused by a variety of underlying conditions and health issues, from injuries to serious health conditions. Many people don’t realise that Chiropractic issues such as poor posture and neck strain are common causes of headache and that Chiropractors may be able to offer effective treatment that can get to the source of the problem and improve your complaint. At Chiropractic Works in Cairns, headaches are a common reason that people come to see us. We have a thorough understanding of the different headache types and their causes and we have been helping the people of Cairns for many years.
What causes headaches?
A headache is your body's way of telling you that something is not right. Some of the milder headaches are the result of occasional "morning after" problems brought on by excess smoking, drinking, eating or other poor health choices. Others may be the indirect symptom of eye strain, neck injury, poor posture, back injury, diet, hunger, poor lighting, excessive noise, constipation just to name a few.
Headache is a very common condition in patients with chiropractic problems in their neck or spine. This can effect overall health, nerves, muscles, and even the blood supply to your head. Musculoskeletal headaches respond well to chiropractic care.
How long will it take?
It can be difficult to predict how long it will take to get positive results from your Chiropractic treatment. Some patients see results really quickly. Others notice a decrease in their symptoms after several weeks of chiropractic care. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time.
